I Oh perceiving that I was awake, a jhand bell was rung by the captain, an •hot coffee, accompanied by the las •slice of shore-bread that remained, wa . brought to me by Billy, the cabin-boy and then, after a time, I was reqilestec ito state what craft that was from (which 1 had been taken, my name, and BO forth, that Mr. Hislop might ente 'all the particulars among the "re Itoarks" In his log-book, ;. I soon satisfied them as to all this ; "And where am I now?" I inquired "Pretty far out upon the open sea my lad," replied the captain with t smile, as he throw the end of his che Iroot into the empty grate. 1 "The open sea— still the open sea!' I reiterated with dismay, which I cared not to conceal. ' "Yes; we saw the last glimpse of the rugged Start on the day before yes- .terday, and this morning, just an hour before picking you up, we bade good- ibye to old England, for the Lizard ! Light was bearing — you had the dead !( watch, Hislop; how did it bear?" j "About twelve miles off, on the .•weather quarter." i "How shall I return home?" | They both laughed as I despairingly 'made this inquiry. I "By the way you left it, I suppose; (that is by water," said Capt. Weston. j "You spoke of the Start; what is (that?" . "A" cape of the' Channel, on the •southeast coast of Devonshire, about nine miles to the southward of Dart[mouth," he replied, while casting a cas- 'tial glance at a chart which lay on the • I had thus, before being rescued so j providentially, drifted more than a (hundred miles from Erlesmere, and it was marvelous that the schooner had Jfloated so far unseen. | "Well, what is to be done now?" ! asked the captain. "We are bound for •the West Indies, but we may put you • aboard the first craft that passes us, [home ward-bound; or you are free to I remain, if we cannot do better for | you." j I thought of my mother, my father, i my two sisters; and my heart was so jfull of gratitude to heaven for preserv- jlng me to the end, that I might see land embrace them all again, that I had ;no words to reply. After a time I exclaimed: j "Home, home!— let me go home to iErlesmere!" — weeping as I spoke, for •the thought of them all made me a very 'child again. J The ca - 'iin and mate exchanged •glances of inquiry. ; "It's no use piping your eye now, my •lad," said the former, coming toward . my berth; "but answer me quietly. You ;sairt that your name' was Rodney?" ( "Yes." •, "And you spoke of Erlesmere; are ,you a son of old Dr. Rodney, the rector?" : "Do you know my father, then?" exclaimed. "Can't say exactly that I have the • honor of being known to him; but I know of him, right well. Why, Master .Rodney, I have sailed your uncle's ships many a time, and know his 'gloomy old office in the city, as well as the buoy at the Nore; so you are as safe and as welcome aboard the Eugenie as if in the old rectory house at home." This was pleasant intelligence, at all events; -but my earnest desire was to return — a design which was not fated to be speedily gratified. , For several days we passed only outward-bound vessels, or others which were at such a distance that the task of signaling and speaking with them would have delayed the Eugenie longer than Capt. Weston could risk. Two that passed near us, when we showed our ensign, replied by displaying the tricolor of France or the red and yel- 'Jow bars of Spain; so there was nothing for me now but to remain contentedly on board the Eugenie, which was •bound for Matanzas with a solid cargo 'of steam machinery and coal. '• The master had no doubt of getting a return freight direct for London; thus six or eight months might elapse before I could return to Erlesmere. t I gradually became reconciled to the novelty of my situation; I looked forward hopefully to the time when the iporrow of those I had left behind would :be alleviated, and began to enjoy to )tne utmost the prospect of a voyage in 'a spanking brig to the shores of Cuba. I CHAPTER V. i The Voyage to Cuba. • I resolved not to be an idler or lob- .lolly bpy, and was allowed by Captain 'Weston to take my watches and sha,re i'of deck duty with the rest of the crew; {and at intervals I worked hard at a •Spanish grammar with -Marc Hislop, who would read "Don Quixote" in the original, with a fluency that even my old tutor at Eton might -have envied, We were now clear of the Channel; 'and, after a bard battle with the wind 'anfl sea, we left the long roll of the mighty Atlantic. 1 On the.third night after my rescue, . j wo encountered darfc an d clpudy weatb- jer, with a strong gale, which set all I the cabin, afloat. My watch was over, 'sftd J bag just turned in, when I heard •tfei voice of Capt. Weston, vi|o was ;ott deck, shouting through his trumpet ;to "plo«e reef the watRfcoj^ail, band maipflall. foresail, au Look alive there, lads," he added, "or as sure as my name is Sam Weston I'll give the volt to the last man off the deck!" This threat, so unusual in one so good-natured, together with the bel lowing of the wind, the flapping of the wetted canvas, the rattle of the blocks and cordage, and the laboring of the brig, which was so deeply laden that every timber groaned, all gave such indications of a rough night that I sprang from my berth and proceeded to dress again in haste. To my astonishment, at that moment I heard the hoarse rattle of the chain cable, as it rushed with a roaring sound through the iron mouth of the hawse hole; then I was sensible ol a violent shock, which made the brig stagger, and tumbled ->e headlong against the paneled' Ir 'lead which separated the cabin from the after- hold. Hislop, who had been dozing on the cabin-locker in his storm jacket, started up with alarm in his face. "Have we come to anchor?" I asked. "Anchor In more than three hundred fathoms of water!" he exclaimed, as he rushed on deck, whither I followed, and found that a very strange incident had occurred. In the murky obscurity of the stormy night a large Dutch lugger, in ballast apparently, and running right before the wind, with steering canvas set, came suddenly athwart us, and hooked the anchor from the cathead on our larboard bow—by some unwonted neglect it was not yet on board, nor had the cable been unbent—with her starboard fore-rigging, and thus bore away with it, until the chain came to bear, when there was a tremendous shock. Several feet of our bulwark were torn away, and two seamen, Tattooed Tom, and an old man-o'-war's man named Roberts, were nearly swept into the sea, where, in such a night, and amid the confusion of such an incident, they would inevitably have perished unaided. Then we heard a shout, mingled with a crash upon the bellowing wind, as the Dutchman's foremast snapped by the board, and then, fortunately, our anchor tumbled from his side into the sea, where It swung at the whole length of the chain cable. We manned both windlass and capstan—got the anchor, which was drifting, roused to the cathead, hoisted it on board, unbent the cable, and stowed it in the tier; but long ere all this was done we had lost sight of our lubberly friend, who, when last seen, was tossing about like a log in the darkness, and drifting far astern of us. But for some defect in the pawls and notches of the windlass collar, I am doubtful if the chain would have run out so freely; but as to this I cannot say. We had hard squalls and a sea that ran high until daybreak; there was lightning, too; red and dusky; it seemed at times to fill the whole horizon. We could see for an instant the black summits of the waves as they rose and fell between us and the glare; and when it passed away, all again would "be obscurity and gloom. "More canvas must be taken off the brig, sir," suggested Hislop, looking aloft and then over the side, where the foam-flecked sea whirled past us.. "Well, in with the trysail, foretop- sail, and malntopsail," ordered Weston. As the light of dawn stole over the angry sea, through clouds of mingled mist -and rain, the gale abated, and all but the watch went below. Calm weather and heavy rains succeeded the gale; but the Eugenie steadily kept her course, and two days after, when spanking along before a fine topgallant breeze, wo picked up a bottle, which was described by the watch, floating and bobbing in the water a few fathoms distant from the brig. Sho was at once hove in the wind, and His- op went in the stern boat to bring the bottle on board. ' As the moat trivial incident becomes' of interest on board of ship, where the daily occurrences are so few, and the circle of society so limited, considerable concern was excited by the appearance of this bottle, which seemed ;o have been freshly corked; and on its being broken, we found a scrap of pa•—torn .apparently from a notebook —whereupon a hurried and agitated land had penciled this brief notice: "The Mary, clipper ship, of Boston, 20th Nov., 1861, momentarily expected to go down—pumps worn out, and the eaks gaining—Captain and first mate, with all the boats, washed away—God help us!" "The 20th of November? It was on hat night we encountered the heavy ;ale," said Weston. We had been on the skirt of the tem>est, as HJslop maintained, while the fankee ship had probably suffered all he fury of it. From the main^cross- reea Capt, Weston swept the sea with telescope, in vain, for any trace of ler; so'if that melancholy scrap of paper told truth, all was doubtless over ong since with the Mary and her crew. In the cabin that night a con versa- ion oh the, probabilities of her de- itrijctlQB. or escape led to a recurrence o the miraculous manner in which the unlucky Patch schooner, had floated so ong with me; and I mentioned to Weson and Hislop the additional terrors had t\ndured by the effect of Jmagiaa- ipn,;aMa rfeqJlectJQn, p.I the strange tola me by Capt, -« but they ridiculed the story of the poor man, chiefly, I thought, because "it was the yarn of a Hollander." "Though I am a Scotchman," began Hislop "And come of a people naturally superstitious," suggested Weston, parenthetically "As all large-brained races are," retorted the mate, while filling his clay pipe with tobacco. "Well, what were you about to say? asked Weston. "But first fill your glass and pass over the tobacco bag." "I was simply about to reiterate that I don't believe in ghosts, or value them any more than I do the Yankee sea serpent, a rope's end, or a piece' of old junk; I never saw one, or knew a man who had seen one; but every one has heard of a man that knew another man who saw, or believed he saw, a ghost. It is at variance with the laws of nature, which are so ordered that no such erratic spirit can be." "I don't know about that," replied Weston; "earth and water have their inhabitants, so why not the air also?" "And why not the fire?" "There you go, right before the wind, into the troubled sea of argument— you Scotchmen are all alike." "Ghosts are at variance with the workings of Divine wisdom, and we all know what Jones of Nayland says thereupon." "No, we don't," said Weston; "who the deuce was he—what port did he hail from?" "He who cannot see the workings of a Divine wisdom in the order of the heavens, the change of the seasons, the flowing of the tides, the operation of the wind and other elements, the structure of the human body, the circulation of the blood, the instincts of beasts, and the growth of plants, is sottishly blind and unworthy the name of man." "You hear him, Mr. Rodney," said Weston; "now he has got both his anchor and topsails a-lrip; he can pay out whole speeches in this fashion, all at a breath, as fast as the chain-cable running through the hawse-pipe." Being fresh from Eton, I was not going to let our learned Scotch mate have it all -his own way, when Weston resumed: "If you will listen you shall hear a strange story In which I bore a prominent part." "As the ghost?" said I. "No; but you will soon acknowledge whether or not I had cause for fear." And after he had replenished his glass and pipe, Capt. Sam Woston began in this manner: "About fifteen years ago I found myself at Matanzas, in Cuba, the same port we are bound for now—adrift, without a ship, and almost without a penny in my pocket, among foreigners,Spaniards and mulattoes. mestees and' quadroons, black, white and yellow. I had gone there as second mate of a ship from Boston, but the tyranny of our skipper wellnigh drove me mad. Dur-! ing the voyage he had nearly killed three of our men for being slow in sending down the top-gallant yards on a squally night. He beat them until' they were black and blue with a handspike, and kept them for forty-eight hours, lashed to ringbolts in the ice- scupppers, that tho sea might break, over them, as he said, and cure their sores. "When I interfered to save a poor cabin boy, whom he had hung up by the heels from the main-boom, and was scourging with a heavy colt till his back was covered with blood, he produced a bowie knife and revolver, tin-eating to 'shoot or rip me up.' "Just at that moment we were passing a Spanish ship of war which was at anchor in the bay, about half a mile from us, and had the red and yellow jack of Castile and Leon flying at his gaff peak. One of the poor fellows who had been so severely beaten was then in the foretop, so I hailed him to make a signal of distress to the Spaniard." (To be continued.) FAMOUS BUCKSPORT CAPTAIN. 1'rollts from Ills Flslilnc Fleet This [Your About $80,OOO. "Tom Nick," or "Cap'n Tom," is said to have made $20,000 at least, clear profit, this year out of his fishing fleet. So say the wisest of the Bucksporters, and they refer to Capt, Thomas Nicholson of that town and to his business prosperity. Cap'n Tom is one of the few men in Bucksport, Me., who are worth more than $100,000, and when he started in life he hadn't a cent or a soul to give him a helping hand, says the Lowiston (Me.) Journal. The story of Cap'n Tom's life is a story of thrift, tireless industry and rapid money making. All along the eastern coast, from Maine to Boston, lie is known as a remarkable man. When he was 13 years of age he made Ills first trip to sea—went fishing on the Grand Banks in a Buckport schooner, and for some years he continued to catch codfish on shares, as one of the crew. The shares were liberal in those days, however, and the men who were willing to work extra hours, stealing the tirae from their watch below, used to make a goodj deal of money by cutting out the cods' tongues and sounds and pickling them lor the home market, those parts of the fishes being, by custom, "thrown n" to "fat up" the men's wages. Cap'n Tom is a bachelor, aged about 40 years, Often he may be seen at work in his little office at 3 o'clock in :he morning. He talks and apparently thinks of nothing but his fishing vessels. . i Slberlun SunMilne. j The Russian meteorologist, Professor Woetkof, calls attention to the almost 1 uninterrupted sunshine that prevails! n -winter }n theIrytBk region of S|be-j ria,;.
